I don't know the make of the watch, but I do know that it will test your patience when it comes to putting it back together again!

Anyway, I hope you find the answer that you seek...........good luck.

I cant find the ID in my bestfit books. What I have noticed with your photo is the Clutch Lever is missing.

Any other members on here that can help Henry. 

Clutch lever = yoke = return bar? Trying to get to grips with as much watch parts terminology as I can!

40mm puts this at a 17.75 ligne movement. This isn't as common as 18 ligne movements but I've looked at a lot of both and come up blank with a match to your movement. [Just to double check ... your first picture shows your movement with a holder ring; the second without so the 40mm should be the measurement without the ring. Yes?].

Tantalisingly there's a '408' on this movement ring but I can't find this relates to anything relevant. Are there no other marks on the movement e.g. if you remove the balance is there something there? Also did the movement come with a dial; does this offer any clues to at least a brand that might point in the right direction?

I'm not sure but there were not many using that kind of quirky setup with the Yoke on the right side and the spring on the left but it was used by MST on like their 15X (154-158 and 139) movements. Maybe some movement based on those?

    • Some updates, I measured the  mainspring barrel of a 6498 and it's 16mm. I also tried loading a 10mm mainspring on an undersized winder, it did not load fully. So I answered my own question hehe. thanks.
    • Thanks. A small correction to my earlier post,  it is a Poljot 2614.2H, not a Vostok. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&&2uswk&Poljot_2614_2H
    • I've been thinking about getting a Russian watch myself. Nice piece Andy.
    • This is the progress so far. The first image is the ebay seller's pic and the description was "Does not start, maybe battery but unable to confirm". In reality, it wouldn't wind, wouldn't set and the scratched up crystal looked even worse in real life (and the second hand had fallen off in the post), but I figured it had to be the twin of the one I already had, and therefore was well worth the 0.99p I bid.
    • Thanks for the correction regarding the movement. You are spot on  with the fiddly calendar works, the first one I looked at, I launched those two springs more times than I care to mention, however forewarned is forearmed, so this one came as no surprise, and I even remembered which way round everything went without having to dig out my pictures of the first teardown.  If you are aware of the issues and take care to do things very gently, the calendar works go back together reasonably easily. I did mange to gocha myself with the keyless works by pulling the crown out with the stem in the wrong position, but I knew I had been an idiot the moment I did it, so I only managed to indulge in that one screwup. The watch is running well, but I haven't attempted to adjust it yet. Beat error is around .1 to .3ms and it kept up a good pace, within 20 seconds or so over the course of the day even without me tinkering with it. I'll let the lubrication settle and do a bit more with it tomorrow. The amplitude is still a little low at around 240 fully wound, so there is scope for a little improvement in that too. The other one runs around 270, so there is no reason to think this wont. I have an almost complete spare movement, including a mainspring, etc.so if I need parts I have them.   That red and gold Poljot on your "About me" page is a cracker, as are the others in your collection.
